I went over to Merseyside well actually to Widnes but the road works we'd passed and noted as a useful film point must have just been very temporary as it was back to 'normal' as far as that goes while the second crossing bridge is being built. So I went to Liverpool Seaforth docks and covered a spot which was actually in another incarnation where I'd first filmed at Seaforth, now a roundabout intersected by a lane of traffic. It worked well until the sun swung around. Then I went to some other spots, the Freeport gate where I used to get hassle from security calling the police, now I notify them on 101 that I'm there and all is well.
After that I did the Cargill entrance road further back towards the city, with midday sun it was great I'd forgotten how good it could be with summer sunshine. To finish a totally new location on the road to Seaforth from the M57 motorway, there is a stretch with two spare lanes forming a sort of wide pavement or road on the far edges, traffic isn't allowed to stop so it creates a viewpoint stretching down the dual carriageway, a tad faster than I'd like but the suin was prefect. I didn't quite get the third hour I treied for but it will match up with something. I was going to Grimsby and Scunthorpe tomorrow but the expected sunshine now seems to be off the agenda,. A whole load of new Arriva deckers are on Merseyside in the new livery, looked much better.
